    So neither the article or the summary actually link to the main product at hand. Convenient.

    a) My primary use for ubuntu one is to buy music from the ubuntu one music store. Its handy to haver everything you bought available on all laptops.

    b) a second important function, which i dont use (i dont like my contact data in the cloud) is the synchronization with a mobile phone. There is no working built-in way in ubuntu which allows this.

    c) for some time the service was very slow and syncronization was unpredictable, so i dont use it for serious stuff right now.

    d) I would like a better integration in the desktop for start/pause sync for single folder or everything (if i am on my mobile AP i do not like to sync everything).

    e) it lacks storage encryption (unless you use encfs on the top, and encfs has issues itself)
